We are held hostage by the sound in our room! We simply can’t tear ourself from listening to more and more music:) The MSB Analog DAC and S201 amplifier + data transport sound amazing with our Django L. Come visit us if you’re around. We’re in the ‘Grundström’ room at Lundqvist & Lindqvist‘s showrooms at Stockholm High End 2013.

We’re so happy with our latest model, Django L that we want to give it away.
So we’ve created a simple competition, though you’ll need to know a little about us, and Sweden.

There’s only a few weeks to go and the excitement is building at Marten HQ. Las Vegas CES 2013 is just around the corner. (Oh, and there’s Christmas too).
We’re launching two new models at the CES – Django L and Coltrane Tenor.
Yes, that’s right – Django L is here! Following in response to last year’s success, Django XL, we had to build this. We’re really happy with the result. In fact it’s exceeded our expectations. This one is 2-way, with bass units from Norwegian SEAS and tweeter from Accuton.
We’re really proud of Coltrane Tenor too. It has newly designed bass units and we think it sounds great.
We had a sneak preview in our hometown of Gothenburg as we talked about in our previous post, but the world premiere will be at the CES. We hope you can visit us in Las Vegas, but if not, just follow all the action here.
We’ll be right back with even more stuff.

The room is really getting there and it already sounds good. There’s always a slight worry before that one of the ‘links in the chain’ will not work or so, so now we can relax. At least until it opens tomorrow.
This is a bit like that huge storage space at the end of ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’:)

‘Haute Fidélité‘, the prestigious HIFI magazine wrote:
The latest chord on the Marten guitar is called Django. It’s a beautiful instrument of music reproduction and it’s particularly well-equipped at the technical level. The quality of finish has the same prestige as the other achievements of the manufacturer. All this for a price as unexpected as reasonable for a Marten loudspeaker. A great success.
We used Google Translate so it might not be the most accurate wording but you get the gist:)
Thank you very much to Monsieur Dominique Mafrand.

We just received this amazing review of our new Django loudspeaker in well renowned Norwegian Fidelity #56
“The speaker feels homogeneous from top to bottom, while the speed and the exemplary micro-dynamics provides an excellent crispness and detail to support themselves on a mountain of solid fundaments. Piano sounds amazingly natural and detailed.”
Very roughly translated, but you can imagine that we’re very happy about this:) Big thank you to Knut Vadseth och Trond Torgnesskar.
